Youth Programs

The Youth Program develops and implements a variety of textile-related programs for youth in grades Kindergarten - 12.  The programs emphasize skill building, science exploration, design analysis, consumer awareness, and community engagement.  Developed for the more than 9,000 New York youth enrolled in 4-H, these programs are also used by school-age childcare programs, scouts, schools, science centers, and other youth agencies.  Educational materials are supported with training for adult and teen leaders.
